GAO: Cyber data sharing is lacking
Thursday - 8/19/2010, 8:30am EDT
- The federal government is not living up to private sector expectations for cybersecurity information-sharing. That's according to a new GAO report. More than 9-in-10 survey respondents from the defense, banking and other industries say they expect at least moderate amounts of "timely and actionable cyber threat information". But only 27-percent say they've received it. GAO warns that if things don't improve, the owners of critical infrastructure, like power systems, won't have the information they need to stop catastrophic cyber attacks.
- You can learn more about CyberSecurity in Second Life. The CyberWatch organization, an Advanced Technological Education Center funded by the National Science Foundation, is launching a 3D online virtual environment in Second Life to teach members about cybersecurity issues. The so-called island will feature classrooms, meeting spaces, private and public auditoriums, and information about CyberWatch. The group will also use the virtual environment to conduct workshops and presentations to their members and for the public. Second Life users can access the CyberWatch region using this link: maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/CyberWatch/123/50/23
- If you're looking for Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts or Jessica Biel online, look out! The movie stars top the latest list of the most dangerous celebrities to search for online, according to new research by computer-security software maker McAfee Inc. It's far from an Oscar, but landing atop McAfee's annual list carries a distinction all its own: It means that criminals believe those celebs are the perfect lures to sucker people into visiting malicious websites. Clicking onto strange sites is sketchy to begin with. But many people do, and their computers get infected. Once a computer is infected, criminals can steal victims' online banking passwords, e-mail passwords, and do other kinds of nasty deeds.
